Introducing: Pedagogue Patricia

We are happy to announce that this year we welcomed on board our pedagogue, Patricia! She has started a teaching program for the children of SINAL based on the Sustainable Development Goals, set by the United Nations. She adapts SDG-related subjects to the context of this urban community within the rainforest. In class she uses activities from the "teatro do oprimido", a theatrical method, that unites exercises, games and theatrical techniques to learn and express oneself. Her first activity was to show the students, who are between the ages of seven to ten, the organic garden we are maintaining on the SINAL property and express how they felt standing in it, posing as a statue, or through paintings. The second topic was animal treatment. The students were asked to build a bird's nest, learning that birds need time and patience to built their houses. The aim was to sensitize the children to deconstruct the common practice of playing with the nests and eggs they find. The children enjoyed the exercise so much that they ended up making birds nests during their breaks throughout the following weeks! They even put their own nests up in the trees for birds to use them.

Additionally, in March we received our first intern of this year, a German-Brazilian PR student who will be part of the SINAL team for five months. She started giving English classes to the children. In a joyful way she tries to explain the Atlantic Rainforest and the animals living within it in English.
At the end of every class at 4 pm a small snack awaits the children, provided by Simone - SINALs regenerative cook - prepared with food grown in our own organic garden. Then the children set off to their way back home, sometimes discussing what they just learned.
